Walking Holidays in Greece

Set foot in marvellous Greece; picture brilliant white buildings, dazzling blue seas, hidden coves and soft sandy beaches. Both the mainland and its islands offer a wealth of incredible outdoor experiences, making Greece a sought-after destination for curious travellers. 

Take adventures in your stride as you traverse quaint coastal towns, charming villages and idyllic Greek islands while embracing the true highlights of this lustrous location; on walking holidays in Greece. From the historical city of Athens to the calm and serene island of Kefalonia, there is a diversity of hikes on offer across Greece. Venture on a walking holiday in Crete to traverse the spectacular Samaria Gorge; before taking a relaxing stroll around Chania’s romantic Venetian harbour.

Wine, Dine and Sunshine

White linen-clad tables lining the shore, the smell of fresh seafood, fried courgette and fava; dining in Greece provides a truly authentic experience in a classic holiday setting. Beautiful Greek cuisine is simply delicious, especially when paired with fine local wines. Rest from the sun in the shade of an olive grove and indulge in your favourite dish after a day of hiking.

Rich Heritage and Culture

Greece delivers on all aspects of history. The ethereal ancient mythology born in this stunning country makes it easy to believe that you are walking the same paths as the Greek Gods. Deep thinkers can ponder upon philosophical thought in the birthplace of Plato; before uncovering ruined cities, temples and theatres. Alternatively, during a holiday in Greece, you can follow the footsteps of the first Olympians, tracing the roots of the world-famous sporting event.

Immerse yourself in the power and culture of the once-great empire in every step you take here. The wealth of Greece’s history provides a magical inspiration that is unparalleled.
